For the past few Weeks the country has been trying to come to terms with a phenomenal outburst of the people against the insincerity of the war against corruption. No doubt corruption has really spread like a virus and people from all over the country are certainly fed up with this corrupt system and are looking for accountability.
Not just in the Metros, even in the small towns....No matter of what age, which caste and gender they belong, even the house wives were seen hand in hand to beat corruption. The most important thing noticed from the newspapers and TV clippings was that they all were the urban class people and fully committed to fight corruption.
Undoubtedly one way or other we all are effected by corruption, but what we are forgetting here that apart from corruption, there are some other issues equally important and do need our attention...but somehow these issues are getting escaped or untouched from our drawing room discussions. They do not touch us in a real sense bcoz we urban class people never experience these issues.....
Issues like Hunger, Malnutrition, being treated as untouchable bcoz you belong to particular caste or community, Girl child abuse etc etc...... In fact these problems are far away from the reality of our urban, progressive and fairly self reliant people, who were seen lighting candle at India Gate.
So apart from making a group on social networks or lighting a candle at the central location of our respective cities for eradicating corruption, we must also think about issues like Hunger, Malnutrition, girl child abuse etc. I am not saying that we should restrain our self from fighting and talking about corruption, we must continue doing that but at the same time we should also think and talk about these issues with the similar feelings as we feel about corruption.
